What does it means when you shoot 3 under in golf?

When less than one percent of all golfers in the world ever break 100 why is it that par for most golf courses in the world is set at 72?

I'm afraid that is way off, I would say 1% of golfers fail to break 100 at one point in their life would be more accurate than the above stat. Par is set at 72 for most courses because there is 18 holes, either par 3, mostly par 4's and some par 5's, the total they add up to is 72 (some courses vary from 69-73). If par was 100 top pros would be maybe 125 under for a tournament which is just silly. The problem you have pointed out is solved by the handicap system, which allows golfers to shoot net under par.

If you shoot 20 rounds under par what is your handicap?

How many people can break Par in Golf?

Less than 1% of all golfers on earthAnswer:The Par value for a golf course is that score that can be attained by an expert player> A professional and certified professional player is by definition an expert player The United States Golf Teachers Federation® trains and certifies golf teaching professionals. It is the largest organization of strictly golf teaching professionals in the world with over 25,000 members. It may be assumed that at least this number of people can break par. It can be further assumed that not everyone who can break par will want to join the organization for either time or financial considerations and that many fine expert level golfers exist outside of the organization. Assume that only 30% of the expert golfers belong, this implies that there are more than 75,000 golfers capable of breaking par at any course and many more if you consider golfers who regularly play at only their local courses where they are familiar with the course. The Golf Research Group estimates that there are 57 million golfers in the world (their criteria for "golfers" are not known). Thee implication is that at least 1% of golfers and as many as 2 to 3% of golfers can regularly break par and a much higher percentage can break par on occasion.

How many under par is an eagle?

Eagle = Two-under-par (-2). Eagles most commonly occur on par-fives, when golfers with enough strength can drive to the green in two strokes rather than the expected three, and then hole out with just a single putt. Less commonly, a player will hole his or her approach shot (either the second shot on a par-four or the third shot on a par-five) to achieve an eagle. Naturally enough, a hole-in-one on a par-three hole also results in an eagle.

What is two shots under par in golf?

The term "eagle" means scoring two under par (−2). Eagles usually occur when golfers hit the ball far enough to reach the green with fewer strokes than expected. This most commonly happens on par fives, though it occasionally occurs on short par-fours. A hole in one on a par-three hole also results in an eagle. The name is simply analogous to a birdie (see above); the name "eagle" was used as a larger bird representing a better score.

If a golf score changed from 1 below par to 5 above par how could the score change?

The score would change by increasing 6 strokes - like from -1 to +5. For instance, if the golf course was par 70, 69 would be one under and 75 would be 5 over par. Remember, in golf the lower the score the better. Making par for 18 holes is very difficult for most golfers. Berney Trembly

What is the difference between pro golf scores for men and women?

There is very little difference between men's and women's golf scores, they both shoot considerable scores under par. The difference is that the women play holes from tee boxes that are a lot farther forward than the men, this isn't because they aren't as good, but it is because they do not hit the ball as far. The handicap systems are the same, for amateur golfers are the same for men and women, but as you know professional golfers don't have handicaps.
